I got this from Jerre Haskew, the former president of Guild , some of the most beautiful sounding guitars in the world. He wanted to clear up a question I had regarding a guitar that Johnny Cash played and is on display in Corona, California at the Fender Guitar Center. It is part of a display of memorabilia from Johnny that is part of the collection of his friend, Bill Miller. When I went to the guild site, I tried to run the serial numbers on the guitar to see how long Johnny had been playing guild. He said in his note to Bill when he gave the guitar to him that he had been playing that guitar for 10 years. Jerre Haskew as you will read, gave him the guitar.
Thanks for the note Jerre, I have contacted the Fender Guitar Center, but have not gotten a reply as to how to get to Bill Miller. I also think that I have found Bill on the web and have sent him a message as well.
